Trump Says He’d Prosecute Clinton If He Becomes President

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton that she will be in jail if he is elected president in November.

After Clinton finished her allotted two minutes where she criticized Trump for different circumstances for not apologizing for past controversial remarks, Trump was given time to respond.

Trump told Clinton that she owed President Obama an apology for her 2008 presidential campaign, specifically senior adviser Sidney Blumenthal, for spreading around pictures of Obama in Arab garb.

Trump said that Clinton also owed her Democratic primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) an apology for what her campaign and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) said about him in hacked emails at the DNC.

"All you have to do is take a look at Wikileaks and just see what they said about Bernie Sanders and see what Deborah [sic] Wasserman Schultz had in mind because Bernie Sanders, between superdelegates and Deborah Wasserman Schultz, never had a chance. I was so surprised to see him sign on with the devil," Trump said.

Trump then went after Clinton's 33,000 emails that were deleted from her private server when she was secretary of state and said that she owed an apology to the American people.

"I'll tell you what. I didn't think I'd say this and I'm going to say it and I hate to say it. If I win, I'm going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it, and we're going to have a special prosecutor," Trump said.

After Trump finished his statement, Clinton insisted that she have time to respond to Trump's accusations and said that his claims were "absolutely false."

Clinton said that it would be impossible to fact-check Trump all the time and she would never get to talk about anything that she wanted to to make peoples' lives better. She also pointed people to her website to fact-check Trump's claims in real time and said that millions of people were fact-checking in the last debate.

"It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country," Clinton said.

"Because you'd be in jail," Trump quipped.
